Consumer Christmas Trolley Watch - Munster

Wednesday, 17 December 2008

Today is our second week of the Christmas Price Comparison Items called Christmas Trolley Watch, a price comparison consumer study of six of the main supermarkets in Ireland. This week we are concentrating on Munster and will reveal the price of 8 Christmas items which make up The Afternoon Show Christmas shopping basket, in six different supermarkets in Munster.

We will be checking the prices in Supervalu, Superquinn, Dunnes, Tesco, Lidl and Aldi. We will also as usual inform viewers of the price of The Afternoon Show shopping trolley in a supermarket up North.
